Class of 2021 Summer Commencement Ceremony

This year, the crew used their ATEM switcher setup. The portable switcher is what they used to broadcast high school football games during the pandemic instead of using the TV truck. It enables them to do a multi-camera production with a very small crew.

The Summer Commencement Ceremony will air on NNPS-TV (Cox Channel 47/Verizon Fios Channel 17, Roku, and Apple TV) at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays in September. It will not air on Tuesday, September 21 due to the School Board meeting at 6:30 p.m.
